Many people are fearing deflation but is this really something to be feared?  Not at all!  If we had an unhampered, free market deflation would naturally occur in the economy!  We would have slowly falling prices because we are more productive and at the same time, real wages are rising!  Today, real wages are falling and the Federal Reserve is slowly eating away our purchasing power via inflation! The deflationary death spiral is a myth and can never happen. Only when government gets involved can a great depression like scenario occur.

Prior to Donald Trump being elected, it was said the markets would crash! The stock market is at record highs and the dollar is at a 14 year high! So does this mean our economy has recovered? No, what we are seeing now is short-lived and once Trump is sworn in as the 45th president of the United States, this optimism will have disappeared. The only way out of our excessive debt problem is inflation. They will paper over these debts. QE4 is coming my friends so prepare yourself!

Donald Trump will be the 45th President of the United States. A guy who has never held public office will be serving in the most powerful position in the world. The world of politics today is crazy, to say the least and as some people are happy with this victory, others are crying their eyes out! What will 4 years of a Trump presidency bring us? I fear it will be a much bigger government and we will continue to add to our debt until the day of reckoning finally comes. The biggest conservative voice in the land, Rush Limbaugh, thinks a Trump victory was a repudiation of big government!  I think Rush completely misses the boat with this comment among others he made the day after this historic election.

Out of 330 million American our 2 choices for President came down to an alleged criminal or a crony capitalist! Both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump want to grow the size of government. Our national debt is nearing $20 Trillion in debt and the next president will continue to spend like we don’t have a debt at all!  I think we got to this moment because the vast majority of citizens out there are economically illiterate!  Nobody understands what truly makes an economy grow and it surely isn’t the government! Unfortunately, those in power think that to get out of a massive debt problem we need to go deeper in debt! Hold on to your hats folks, this economy is going to have a very bumpy ride!


Hillary says the rich don’t pay their fair share and she wants to go where the money is! Where is most of the money at?  The majority of people are in the “middle class!” The dirty little secret is that Hillary will tax the middle class to get through her programs! The top 1% pay an effective tax rate of 27.1%, while the bottom 50% pay an effective tax rate of 3.3%!  The rich pay more than their fair share!  We are less than a week from Election Day and regardless of who wins the government will continue to grow! Our national debt is approaching $20 trillion and our day of reckoning is fast approaching. Prepare yourself now because the politicians out there will not protect you!

I recently got back from the Contra Cruise that was hosted by Tom Woods and Bob Murphy. The Contra Cruise was phenomenal and it was such a great group of libertarians to connect with. What came up often amongst the group was a question of messaging and converting people to libertarian ideas. What is the best way to do this? The last part of this episode, I have a few answers.


John Hunt talks about the new book he has co-authored with Doug Casey called Speculator. John talks about how it is living in Africa and he points out how they actually view money in a much different way, than we do in the United States. If you have money, it’s best to hide it and not tell anybody about it because they like to borrow it without any intention of paying it back! John also explains how Doug and him started on this project together and what’s to come in this incredible series! This book is a must read and you can purchase it from amazon at this link: https://www.amazon.com/Speculator-High-Ground-Doug-Casey/dp/0985933259/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1475817771&sr=8-1&keywords=speculator

The first presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump was not very impressive at all. Ok so Hillary did the best she possibly could during the debate, which isn’t really saying much. Then we have Donald Trump who missed opportunity after opportunity to throw egg in Hillary’s face and he didn’t do it!  Trump was on the defensive the entire time while Hillary stayed on offense. According to the average American voter out there these two clowns are the most competent to be the next President of the United States! I’m not impressed to say the least.

The FED didn’t raise interest rates in September and this comes as no surprise to any listener of this show. Raising interest rates right before a presidential election is extremely improbable and our economy is not as strong as the “experts” believe!  Steve Eiseman also has been in the news recently for his view on the economy. Steve Eiseman is the real life guy from the movie, “The Big Short.” This guy made million shorting subprime mortgages in 2007. He sees things will continue to slug along until the world loses faith in QE (money printing).  Our economy has some rough times ahead. It’s best to prepare now while you still can!

The EpiPen story has been huge these past few weeks and this story actually shows us a lot of what’s wrong with the “system” today!  EpiPen now costs $300 for one syringe and when it first came out in in 1977 it cost $57!  How is it the cost of EpiPen has soared in price? This is the result of government intervention! The FDA has blocked out competition due to cronyism and the government playing to favored companies like Mylan!  Even the patent that Mylan has had on EpiPen is yet another reason, why there’s so little competition against the EpiPen! We need to get the government out of our lives and we will all be better for it!
